Bible Believers' Newsletter 945
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
We greet you in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ and look forward to your fellowship this week.
Today we continue in our study in the Book of Malachi in which has no connection with part two. In the Name of the Lord Malachi rebukes the marriage of Israelites with foreigners, natural and/or spiritual Serpent's seed, and the divorce of their lawful wives. Regulations concerning marriage, divorce and remarriage instituted by Moses continued unaltered through the ministries of Jesus and Paul to Brother Branham. Marriage and divorce in the natural types justification, sanctification and regeneration by the invisible marriage union of Christ with His Bride.
Marriage is not the solemnisation of vows before witnesses in Church but the mutual commitment of a man and a woman. God is the Eternal Word in which there is no shadow of turning or change. And He expects us to honour our word to one another and to Himself as we expect Him to honour His Word. We are living at the terminus of life on earth, a day in which miscegenation is championed as 'multiculturalism,' a repetition of the original sin on a global scale "as it was in the days of Noah" (Matthew 24:37). This reminds us that "without holiness no man will see God".

Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil
May 13, 2016 — Your teachers and your nation have taught you lies from the cradle to the grave.
The author of this book is Gerard Menuhin, son of the famous American-born violinist Yehudi Menuhin, who, though from a long line of rabbinical ancestors, fiercely criticized the foreign policy of the state of Israel and its repression of Palestinians in the Holy Land.
Have you ever asked yourself why the world won't come to rest? Why your parents, grandparents or great-grandparents had to die in wars that never should have occurred in the first place? This book holds the answer . . . Behind the scenes; events are controlled by a coterie of ethnic puppet masters who work their marionettes in high places out of public view. How did this world get to the dark place it is today? Who could have stopped it and what can we do today?
The book consists of three sections. The first section concerns Adolf Hitler, and the real causes leading up to the outbreak of WWII. The second section enlarges on the activities of the real culprits, provides a historical overview of their progress, their nature, their power over finance and the media, and the methods by which they achieved it.
The third section concerns the First and Second World Wars (what the author refers to as "the Second Thirty Years War"), their conception, funding and inescapable continuity; current laws against freedom of expression, and the evolution of the Orwellian state; the importance of US support for the Soviet Union throughout the Cold War, and Communism's significance in the plan; the true origins of the enemy; Palestine's occupation and its fate as an example of our common fate; plus much more.
The text is interspersed with "Memos from Today," that emphasize its relevance by citing current events. Hundreds of quotes are included from a wide range of authoritative sources, original and translated. The last pages of this manuscript comprise conclusions and predictions.

Comment: This .pdf file of the book is very important and easy reading; a valuable guide to perplexed lovers of Truth.
Was King James a Homosexual?
Question: I have been told that King James was a homosexual. Is this true?
Explanation: King James I of England, who authorized the translation of the now famous King James Bible, was considered by many to be one of the greatest, if not the greatest, monarchs that England has ever seen. Through his wisdom and determination he united the warring tribes of Scotland into a unified nation, and then joined England and Scotland to form the foundation for what is now known as the United Kingdom.
At a time when only the churches of England possessed the Bible in English, King James' desire was that the common people should have the Bible in their native tongue. Thus, in 1603 he called fifty-four of history's most learned men together to accomplish this great task. At a time when the leaders of the world wished to keep their subjects in spiritual ignorance, King James offered his subjects the greatest gift he could give them: their own copy of the Word of God in English.
James, who was fluent in Latin, Greek, and French, and schooled in Italian and Spanish even wrote a tract entitled "Counterblast to Tobacco" to help thwart the use of tobacco in England. Such a man was sure to have enemies. One such, Anthony Weldon, had to be excluded from the court. Weldon swore vengeance. It was not until 1650, twenty-five years after the death of James that Weldon saw his chance. He wrote a paper calling James a homosexual. Obviously, James, being dead, was in no condition to defend himself.
The report was largely ignored since there were still enough people alive who knew it wasn't true. In fact, it lay dormant for years, until recently when it was picked up by 'Christians' who hoped that vilifying King James would tarnish the Bible that bears his name so that Christians would turn away from God's Book to a more "modern" translation.
It seems though, that Weldon's false account is being once again largely ignored by the majority of Christianity with the exception of those with an ulterior motive, such as its author had. It might also be mentioned here that the Roman Catholic church was so desperate to keep the true Bible out of the hands of the English people it attempted to kill King James and all of Parliament in 1605.
In 1605 a Roman Catholic by the name of Guy Fawkes, under the direction of a Jesuit priest by the name of Henry Garnet, was found in the basement of Parliament with thirty-six barrels of gunpowder which he was to use to blow up King James and the entire Parliament. After killing the king, they planned on imprisoning his children, re-establishing England as a state loyal to the Pope and killing all who resisted. Needless to say, the perfect English Bible would have been one of the plot's victims. Fawkes and Garnet and eight other conspirators were caught and hanged . . .

Malachi 2:10 – 16
Malachi's rebuke of the Levitical priesthood for divorcing their Israelite wives to marry heathen, even physical Serpent's seed women and for corrupting their covenantal office by withholding and hiding sentence of the Law against it (Malachi 2:8-9) now falls upon the broad Israelite population whom they have caused to stumble at the Law and marry idolatrous foreign (Heb.) 'Nokriy' wives; in particular He reprimands men who have put away the lawful wife of their youth.
Malachi 2:10, "Have we not all one [spiritual] father [in whom our nation is one family (Malachi 1:6; Jeremiah 31:9; I Corinthians 8:6]? Has not one God created us [to be His peculiar and chosen people for His glory and as a witness to His unity (Isaiah 43:1, 7)]? Why then are we faithless to one another [divorcing an Israelite wife in order to marry a heathen is a violation of the fraternal relation] profaning the Covenant of our fathers?"
This abomination has overcome us Gentiles physically through 'multiculturalism,' a euphemism for miscegenation, and spiritually through denominationalism, ecumenism, Vatican II, the charismatic movement, World Council of Churches and similar forbidden interfaith adventures (Amos 3:3). Since the revelation of the Seven Seals Christ has been calling His people out from Rome and her (once) Protestant daughter churches into the unity of the faith for the manifestation of the Sons of God and the translation (Matthew 25:6; I Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 18:4).
Intermarriage with the physical Serpent's seed, whether for a husband or wife was forbidden under the Law (Deuteronomy 7:3). It was a violation of the Covenant that commanded separation and would condemn their posterity which would forever be accursed Cainites and the Israelite spouse would tend to apostatise. Many of the captivity who returned with Serpent's seed partners and children under Ezra (9 - 10) were commanded to put them away (Nehemiah 13:18-31).
Under the New Covenant wherein "our Saviour Jesus Christ gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works . . . we are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that we should show forth the praises of Him who has called us out of darkness into His marvellous Light" (Titus 2:13-14; I Peter 2:9). As a new creation "created in Christ Jesus unto good works" (Ephesians 2:10) we have a new familial relation to each other so that every offence against a Brother or Sister in Christ is a violation of their relation to God and our mutual unity. "Because of this many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep ["put away" prematurely to prevent them from bringing reproach on the Word]. For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged" (I Corinthians 11:30-31).
Such unfaithfulness is treachery against a Brother or Sister and the Body of Christ, profaning the Covenant in His Blood, "For by one Spirit we are all baptized into one Body . . . so if one member suffers, all suffer together; or if one member is honoured, all rejoice together" (I Corinthians 12:13, 26). Thus in sanctioning the remarriage of widows Paul says "Only in the Lord" (I Corinthians 7:39). And in sanctioning the remarriage of ministers Brother Branham said, "He can remarry; he can marry—he can remarry again if it's a virgin' (Marriage and Divorce, p. 33:221-228).
Christ is only marrying a virgin to the Word, and the minister as an anointed one must take a virgin to wife. Speaking of Israel's high priest who was a type of Christ, we read in Leviticus 21:13-15, "The [high priest] shall take a wife in her virginity. A widow, or a divorced woman, or profane, or a harlot, he shall not take: but he shall take a virgin of his own people to wife. Neither shall he profane his seed among his people: for I the Lord sanctify him".
Verses 11-12, "Judah has dealt treacherously, being faithless, and an abomination is committed in Israel and in Jerusalem; for Judah has profaned the holiness of the Lord, [God's "holy nation"] which he loves, [by physical miscegenation with the Serpent's seed and "teaching for doctrines the Talmudic commandments of men that make the Word of God of no effect" that is spiritual adultery or idolatry] and has married the idolatress daughter of a strange god—[a "daughter of man" as in the days of Noah (Genesis 6:1-4; Exodus 34:11; Deuteronomy 7:1-4)]. The Lord will cut off [destroy] out from the tents of Jacob [and eliminate from His Covenant] every man who is guilty of this sin and does not repent, the master and the scholar, and him that offers an offering to the Lord of hosts".
"Judgment must begin at the House of God." Pulpit delinquency comprehends the priest who was to teach people piety but led them into evil, and those people were also guilty (Ezra 9:1-2). Without repentance and renewal his offerings will not shield him from the penalty of his sin in repudiating his Israelite wife and marrying a daughter of Cain. The priests and the people must put away their Serpent's seed wives and children that render God's Covenant void, and cease from sin before their offering can be accepted. Israel was to be the repository of the Covenant and the root of Messiah, an oasis of godly order surrounded by unruly seas of miscegenation, polytheism, natural and spiritual fornication and repudiation of wives wedded in the Jewish covenant, utterly set aside this divine purpose.
Man failed to uphold God's conditional covenants, and ultimately Messiah Jesus met sin's penalty under the unconditional Covenant of grace by faith "reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them; and has committed unto us the Word of reconciliation" (II Corinthians 5:17).
Malachi was prophesying after the return from Babylon with reference to God's Covenant with the descendants of Jacob not the descendants of Abraham who was also the progenitor of Ishmaelites and Edomites. 270 years later John Hyrcanus I defeated the Edomites, and compelled them to be circumcised and incorporated into Pharisaism "they were hereafter no other than Jews" (Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews, xiii. 9, 1). Thus it was non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews who withstood Jesus preaching Himself as "the Light of the world" and justifying His doctrine; these boldly declared "We are Abraham's seed" with which Jesus agreed. To this day they do not claim to be Jacob's seed or Israelites, only Abraham's seed or Israelis, and claim that Jesus Messiah was born of fornication (John 8:12-56).
700 years after Titus razed the Temple, Talmudic rabbis from Babylon converted the Khazars who vastly outnumbered the Jews. Originally from Lower Mongolia they conquered the Ukraine and Georgia which they called Khazaria. Migrating to the Mediterranean they took over the Genovese and Venetian oligarchies, married into Byzantium, occupied the papal throne, and by the 1200s they had married into royalty. These non-Semitic Ashkenazim Jews conquered and communised Russia in 1915 and now constitute over 90% of world Jewry thus "Judah's treacherous dealings and the abomination committed in Israel and in Jerusalem . . . that profaned the holiness of the Lord which He loved" is symptomatic of the present distress.
Truth and righteousness are so scarce the 144,000 elect remnant of blood Israelites will be "more precious than fine gold," and the wicked will be destroyed (Isaiah 13:12). Following the relapse from Ezra's reforms, divorce and foreign intermarriage were becoming increasingly prevalent in Malachi's time.
The forsaken Israelite wives—separated by God as a people holy unto the Lord were "the holy seed" (Numbers 33:55-56; Ezra 9:2; Jeremiah 2:3)—the Word of His Covenant manifest by their obedience. Thus in dealing treacherously with God's daughters, their husbands profaned "the holiness of the Lord" and rejected the Holy Spirit through their actions, rendering themselves liable to sudden destruction by removal from the Book of Life (Deuteronomy 7:1-3). As they were marrying Serpent's seed which is accursed of God (Genesis 4:11-14; 9:25-27; 11:15-19). Under the banns their seed was cherem, subject to destruction as an affront to His holiness being absent the Book of Life: without inheritance in this world or hope in the world to come. The land of Israel belonged to God but was allotted to the tribes, divided among tribal families and passed from father to son. It could never be lost and if forfeited owing to indebtedness it must be restored in the year of jubilee. However, the offspring of miscegenation were not even in Adam's race and ostracised by the tribe of their Israelite parent. While God gratuitously "loved" His holy people Israel and covenanted without merit (Psalm 47:4; Malachi 1:2), He hates Cain and Canaan into whose lineage Esau had married.
Verses 13-14, "In addition to marrying heathen wives you put away the wives of your youth against their will; lamenting this cruel treatment they pour out their hearts before the Lord, covering His altar with the tears, and with weeping and groaning seek His help so that He no longer regards your offering or accepts it with favour at your hand [as it is polluted by the sins of your daily domestic life]".
"Why is my sacrifice rejected? You shamelessly ask [feigning innocence in your hardness of heart, refusing to be ashamed and confess your guilt]".
"Because the Lord was witness between you and the wife of your youth plighting your troth 'Until death us do part.' God sanctified the marriage bond against which you dealt treacherously against her—violating your own faith and her trusting love, which she had given once for all, and could not now retract. Yet she is your companion, and your wife by covenant."
An Israelite husband was often but thirteen years of age, which is the age of accountability, and the wife twelve. Today the Judaeo-communised post-Christian West regards children as human resources belonging to the state and pledged to the IMF. In true Jesuitical tradition the state commandeers and inoculates their minds with pre-school education, programming that will continue into their twenties followed by competition in the workplace while nature distinguishes gender roles and says they should be marrying in their teens.
Contrary to God and nature, society is plagued by immoral and amoral men and women sexual freebooting in serial monogamy. Australia's disgraced one time Attorney General Lionel Murphy devised 'no-fault' divorce laws, unbalancing the natural economy by causing now 'broken' families to invest in two homes, enriching lawyers and banksters and preventing women from being "keepers at home." Murphy's unscriptural ideology pandered to lasciviousness, breeding a nation of bastards born of incest or adultery and excluded from the election by the sins of their parents (Deuteronomy 23:2). The marriage bond is indissoluble except for some great misconduct and among God's people marriage is a "covenant of their God" (Proverbs 2:17; Genesis 2:24), and we must remember that "all things work together for good to those who love the Lord." He will transform trials and undesirable circumstances into victories that tailor maturity and a Christ-like character in one or both partners overcoming with the Token on display. Murphy also adopted racial discrimination/hatred legislation crafted by the disbarred Jewish attorney American-Russian Joseph Ribakoff that has divided and conquered this nation, Canada and numerous other once homogenous countries, surrendering democracy to minorities, aliens and freeloaders on the public purse in the hedonistic Judaeo-communistic spirit of Laodicea.
The world church system suffers from a surfeit of political and social thinkers, a drought of the Spirit and a famine for hearing the Words of the Lord (Amos 8:11). The one thing needful is not a change of conditions or environment but redemption from sin and "Christ in you." Man's sorrows are symptoms exacerbated by reasoning against faith. As Big Pharma synthesizes God's natural remedies at great cost so it can manufacture and sell patented products at great profit to comatose and hide warning symptoms instead of harvesting and distributing nature's aid to cure at reasonable cost. Denominationalism employs the same psychology: instead of excising sin from man's soul with God's Word applied by the firm hand of faith it massages his spirit with psychology and comfortable words, recites an unscriptural Apostle's Creed, enacts ritual, shakes hands and drinks tea after the funeral.
Verse 15, "And did He not make one [flesh]? Yet had He the residue of the spirit. And why one? So that He might seek a godly seed through a husband and wife cleaving as one flesh (Genesis 2:24). Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none be unfaithful to the wife of his youth. For I hate divorce, says the Lord God of Israel, and covering violence with one's garment, says the Lord of hosts. So take heed to your spirit, and do not deal treacherously".
In Romans 8:10-16 Paul said, "If Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is [eternal] Life [in you] because of righteousness [which is the evidence of the Holy Spirit]. But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies [into obedience of faith] by His Spirit that dwells in you. Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if you live after the flesh, you shall die: but if through the Spirit you mortify the deeds of the body, you shall live. For all who are guided by God's Spirit are sons of God. For you have not received a spirit that would re-enslave you to fear; but [as an overcomer] you have received the Spirit of sonship, by which we cry, Abba, Father! This Spirit bears witness with our spirit that we are God's children".
Concerning Malachi 2:15 Brother Branham said, now, there you are: "If the Bridegroom's Spirit dwells in the Bride".
"When God made His first bridegroom, He made the bridegroom first, and he was both man and woman in [his mortal] spirit, [then He] formed him in the dust of the earth to make him material. And notice, when He made Eve from Adam, He took not another piece of clay, He took from the same piece of clay, the same Word; for Adam was a spoken Word. See? . . . He had masculine and feminish spirit, and He took the feminish spirit away from Adam and placed it in Eve, so it's still part of Adam's spirit. It's Adam's flesh. Then it was Adam's spirit, the dynamics, that quickened the mechanics of his body.
So the Bride must also be flesh of His flesh, and bone of His bone. Now, how is this mortal flesh going to become His flesh? We'll get to it in a minute. See? How is it done? . . . What is this great transformation? Notice.
"Now, if the Spirit of Him . . . (God) . . . that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwells in you".
Oh, my. The predestinated one of course, like the seed laid upon the earth, the One that had Life in them. Many of them were dead. They were just rotten seeds; the waters and things burn them out. But you know there was a seed laying there ready for Life. God knowed it was laying there.
Now, the predestinated Ones are the first to be quickened by the Holy Spirit, for the Holy Spirit comes to claim Its Own. Now, this is deep now and be sure to catch this good.
Now, as the sun was sent across the earth, not to bring rocks (which was dirt also) to life, it was not to bring all the dirt to life, but was to bring the part of the dirt which was enclosed around a Life.
Not all men will receive Christ. Oh, no, but those which God foreordained Life is housed around some of the dirt of the earth. That's the one He comes to quicken. They're the Ones that . . .
Now, that dirt would lay there in the sun and say, "Oh, this old sun's so hot"; that rock, say, "This old sun's so hot"; but that little seed said, "That's what I'm looking for." And it began to spring forth to life. It quickened that part of the dirt, because the sun was sent, not to quicken the rock, not to quicken the dirt, but to quicken the life of the seed.
Now, the Holy Spirit comes now. Of course, It wasn't sent . . . Why won't all the people receive It? It wasn't sent to them" (It is the Rising of the Sun, p. 17:122-129).
In Genesis 5:1-3 we read, "This is the Book of the generations of Adam [His genealogy, the Book of Life]. In the day that God created (Heb.) 'bara' man [out of nothing in His eternal thoughts], in the likeness of God [angel or theophany] He made (Heb.) 'asah' him from existing material; male and female He created (Heb.) 'bara' them [in His mind]; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created [(Heb.) 'bara' out of nothing but His creative thought before Adam was formed in flesh and consequently before Eve was separated from Adam and formed from his rib as woman]. And Adam lived a hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness [a living soul and potential theophany], after his image [spirit]; and called his name Seth".
In order to understand the history of creation we must understand that before material creation God (Heb.) 'bara' created Adam and all of his race both male and female in His eternal thinking, from whom the names of an election were written in the Lamb's Book of Eternal Life—Christ's Spirit-born posterity (Isaiah 53:10). A clear revelation of new birth casts out fear because we know who we are, whence we came, and where we are going. This diagram illustrates the generations of Jesus Christ, Husband and Wife, Israel's King and Queen—the mystery of God revealed in His glorified Family (Ephesians 1:4-5, 9). The Old Testament saints and the nation of Israel are God's servant nation, the Kingdom bureaucracy and our attendants.
"On the sixth day" God made (Heb.) 'asah' Adam from existing material with His wife (and all of his seed). Genesis 2:1-3: "Thus the heavens and the earth and all their host [that God had made in the first six days] were finished. And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which He had made 'asah.' And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it He had rested from all His work which God created (Heb.) 'bara' and made (Heb.) 'asah'".
God's "work" throughout those six days—(Heb.) 'yowms' or periods of time—was to "make" (Heb.) 'asah' from existing material by speaking His eternal thoughts to manifest in their designated and decreed season and time over the next seven millennia. While He completed that work on the sixth day we find that on the seventh day His spoken Word creation had not fully manifest. Genesis 2:4-7: "These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created (Heb.) 'bara', in the day that the Lord God made (Heb.) 'asah' the earth and the heavens, and every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. And [on the seventh day] the Lord God (Heb.) formed (Heb.) 'yatsar' [moulded or squeezed] man [into form] of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of lives and man became a living soul".
Genesis 2:18-22, "And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make (Heb.) 'asah' him a suitable helper. And [on the seventh day] out of the ground the Lord God formed (Heb.) 'yatsar' every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was its name. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found a suitable help for him. And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; and the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, He rebuilt (Heb.) 'banah' a woman [as an extension, by-product, or continuation of Adam], and brought her to the man".
The written Word of God's Holy Bible is His Absolute, and we see from the first five chapters of Genesis the distinction between God creating, making, forming, and continuing His creation. We see the folly of Darwinian theory and the evolution of species set forth by Satan and his children to denounce the Absolute; even the existence of the Great Creator who became my Saviour and formed Adam before the lower animals. Furthermore we see that God's spoken Word creation was finished approximately 100 years before Eve was formed as a by-product from Adam.
I Corinthians 11:7-12, "Man is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of man. For man is not out of woman; but woman is out of man. For man was not created for the woman; but woman for the man. For this cause ought the woman to have uncut hair signifying she is under submission to the headship of God and man as instructed by God's messengers. Nevertheless neither is woman without man, nor man without woman, in the Lord. For as the woman is out of the man, even so is the man also by means of the woman; but all things are from God".
You will never find a Christian woman who cuts her hair or wears clothes that pertain to a man. Cut hair is the sign of a woman caught is adultery or prostitution. In both the Old and New Testaments it signifies rejection of the authority of the Holy Spirit and man.
Genesis 1 – 5 and I Corinthians 11:7-17 explain Malachi 2:15; because man is the head of his wife and household, and the stronger vessel he should maintain his mortal spirit within due bounds and remain faithful in holy union, the objective of which is to reproduce godly posterity through their unity. Any treacherous dealing against the wife is a sin against his own body. We must bring our thoughts or mortal spirit subject to the revealed Word in our soul, then our mortal spirit will bring our body subject to the Word.
Matthew 19:4-6, "Jesus asked the Pharisees, Have you not read, that He Who made them at the beginning made them male and female. And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they two shall be one flesh? Therefore they are no more two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together—[not some backslidden preacher or half-drunk magistrate]—let not man put asunder." God's design to perpetuate a godly seed is counteracted by frequent divorce and 'multiculturalism' which is miscegenation and accursed of God.
Adam was God's spoken Word, the first and highest order of creation; his wife and potentially all of his seed or race were in him then as His KINSMAN Redeemer the last Adam was created with His Wife and all of His seed in Him. This marks the oneness of marriage and makes it a law of nature, appointing "that out of man [created in His own image and similitude], woman should take her beginning, and, knitting them together again taught that it should never be lawful to put asunder those, whom God had united as one by holy matrimony?" Between Adam and his wife, and consequently between all born from them and joined together by God, there should be one indivisible union.
The whole of the animal kingdom is God's spoken Word; almost without exception the male is beautiful while the female is plain until we come to man, the first and highest of God's creatures. The first Adam like the last Adam was God's spoken Word: "He had no form or comeliness that we should look at Him, and no beauty that we should desire Him" (Isaiah 53:2). When Satan incarnate the Serpent he did not attempt to deceive Adam who was the Son of God and could not be deceived on the revealed Word of God (Matthew 24:24; Luke 3:38). Satan went to Eve, who was a by-product and not original creation; unlike other females woman is beautiful, designed so she can deceive and be deceived.
Thus, "Women should adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety . . . Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, or to usurp authority over a man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression." Then in verse 15 he shows the Eve was beguiled and conceived Cain by the Devil-incarnate Serpent (I Timothy 2:11-15; Genesis 3:1-17; I John 3:12; 2:13-14).
If one cannot see the true oneness of the Godhead, scriptural water baptism in the Name of our LORD JESUS CHRIST and the revelation of the original sin you know the election is off (Titus 3:9-11).
The reason for God's caution in verse 15, "Take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth" is found in verse 16, "For the Lord, the God of Israel, says that He hates putting away: for one covers [hides] violence [wrongdoing] with his garment, says the Lord of hosts: therefore take heed to your [mortal] spirit, that you do not deal treacherously".
Psalms 73:6, "violence covers them as a garment." Their "violence" is the putting away of their wives while the "garment" behind which they hide is the plea of Moses' permission (Deuteronomy 24:1; Matthew 19:6-9).
God hates putting away. Those who would be kept from sin, must take heed to their mortal spirit, for there all sin begins. Men's wrong conduct in their families springs from selfishness, which disregards the welfare and happiness of others, when opposed to their own passions and fancies. It is wearisome to God to hear people justify themselves in wicked practices. Those who think God can be a friend to sin affront him and deceive themselves. The scoffers said, "Where is the God of judgement?" (Malachi 2:17), but "the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night" (I Thessalonians 5:1).
The mind is the womb of the spirit, so "let your mind dwell upon whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute; if there is any excellence, and if there is anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things" (Philippians 4:8). Unhealthy thoughts conceive evil works. We have five senses by which the outer man contacts the material world: see, taste, feel, smell, and hear. And five senses which contact the inner man: conscience, memory, reasoning, imagination and affection. You, your soul is the inside of inside. God has placed you on the basis of free moral agency to receive intelligence from your ten mortal senses then assess and "prove all things" by the revealed Word of the hour, accepting or rejecting the data to bring your mortal spirit under strict obedience to God's Absolute so that it, in its turn will brings your body subject to the Word and Husband of your soul. Eve entertained instead of evicting Satan's lie in the womb of her mind, enabling her to doubt God's Word against her own better judgment, then sin conceived adultery.
We can only be born again by first receiving the revelation of God's Word for the hour in the womb of our mind; then the Spirit brings our soul into the unity of the faith. Since the end of Christ's mediation, the Seven Church Ages of PART Word (I Corinthians 13:10), and redemption and Jesus Christ is calling a Bride out from Rome and her harlot daughters to be pregnated with His own Seed Word in the womb of Her mind. Like the mustard seed the fullness of His Word will not mix with any denominational trash. Christ's end-time Bride is a virgin to the Word, "Therefore take heed to your [mortal] spirit, that you do not deal treacherously" (II Corinthians 11:1-4). nl945.htm
